March Slow Ride: Bike Birding with Audubon Center at Debs Park

  • Steelhead Park 2230 Oros Street Los Angeles, CA, 90031 United States (map)

On  Saturday March 9th, Audubon Center at Deb’s Park will lead us on a unique bird watching adventure along the Los Angeles River.  We will begin at Steelhead Park where Tania Romero and Cindy Castaneda will introduce the history of Steelhead Park and Oros Street – the first green street in Elysian Valley. From there, they will lead us in bike birding along the path, pausing for birding opportunities. We will make our way north to Spoke Bicycle Café where everyone is welcome to stay for coffee and conversation.

The length of this trip is only 1.64 miles, but we will be taking our time, with birding our priority. This ride is family friendly, and suitable for all ages and skill levels. Pedestrians are always welcome on the Slow Ride, but this month we encourage folks to ride because our special hosts may take us adventuring into nearby pocket parks as we make our way north in search of avian discoveries.


Audubon Center at Deb’s Park does need waivers for riders. Download the adult bird watcher waiver. And click here for kid bike birder waivers!

Often described as a “hidden jewel”, the Audubon Center at Debs Park seeks to engage with the local communities of northeast Los Angeles. The Center is located in the fourth largest park in the city of Los Angeles. More than half of the park is covered in walnut-oak woodland, grassland, and coastal sage scrub, a remnant of the native habitats that once rimmed the Los Angeles Basin. Over 140 species of birds have been recorded here.

If you can’t make this one of a kind bike birding event, consider joining one of Audubon Center at Deb’s Park regular bird walks, held at the center the second and third Saturday of each month.
